others of us wouldn't make with other people's lives. >> would you want to hear from president obama tonight in his except in speech? >> he has to follow michele and bill clinton and he has a tough time but i know he is a bright guy and has been thinking about that. what i would like to hear is more about what is he going to do in the next four years to help us get our momentum back particularly given head winds from outside the u.s.. a lot of americans don't realize every time we get a leg up the euro zone falls into crisis and we have a tsunami and china slows down and the question is is there anything of a president can tell us that will give us more confidence that we are going to continue to improve and increase that case. >> you are a registered democrat or republican? independent? >> i am an independent. lisa rakowski is one of my politicians. i like the people in the middle. that is where i sit and where most americans searched. >> thanks for joining us. dave: always the swing vote. liz: quoting a person, not a party. dave: interesting data car guy would be for the president.
